Following the death of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh these are the arrangements as I have been instructed by the Diocese.
We are not allowed to use the books of condolence we had ready, because of Covid. However please see below for links to online books of condolence on the cathedral website and the Church of England website. There is also one I believe on the Buckingham Palace website.
However, our church will be open for private prayer on Sundays and Wednesdays 10am-4pm, with printed prayers available, and our Lenten and Easter prayer tree is still available for use in the porch.
"Books of Condolence
The Royal Family have issued the following statement, “During the public health situation, Books of Condolence will not be available for the public to sign.”
